P2 : to the right then straight up a curtain. Exit in the trees by hooking branches and roots, 30m tree belay.
Upstream icefall
About 100m upstream, just before the chapel built into the rocks.
P1 : A long step, not too steep, a traverse, a short step a traverse then a step traversed to the right. Tree belay (45m).
P2 : Make an exit onto the Roman road above if possible.
